The Lion King
By: Amyah Ward
In the story The Lion King, a young lion is born. This makes his uncle Scar mad because he is now second in line for the throne. Scar and the hyenas plan to kill King Mufasa and Prince Simba to make himself King. Simba's father, Mufasa, is killed and Scar leads Simba to believe that it was his fault. This makes Simba flee the kingdom in shame.
Hidden Implications are conclusions that can be drawn from something, although it is not explicitly stated. They are naturally inferred or understood.
These are some of the hidden implications in the story "The Lion King."
"Ah yes, the past can hurt; you can either run from it, or learn from it." I think this quote means that the past may be something that you aren't proud of; but you can't hide from it. You should just take the past as it is and learn from it. You shouldn't be afraid of you past, you should embrace it and try your best to make a better future.
In this part of the story, Simba is talking to Rafiki about going back to his homeland. But Simba is scared to go back because he doesn't want to face his past. But Rafiki tells him that he should embrace his past and try to learn from his mistakes and move on.
I can relate to this because I always base things on how it went in the past. Thinking about how things went before, I will base the future upon it. I will tend to never try anything again if in the past, it didn't work.
Have you ever tried to run from your past? Have you ever been tempted to move away because of something that happened the day before?
"Listen kid, bad things happen, and there's nothing you can do about it." In this quote I think it means that if something happens that you couldn't stop, there's no reason you should feel bad about it. You can still feel sad if it was a lose of a close person to you, but you shouldn't feel bad about doing it, because it wasn't your fault.
In this part of the story, Simba is feeling bad about his father's death because he was hanging on to the tree branch while an stampede was going on. His father, Mufasa, came to help him get down and got run over by the buffalos. But what Simba didn't know was that Scar was behind the whole thing and he was the one who wanted to kill Mufasa. Scar was making Simba feel like it was his fault, but it wasn't.
This implication relates to me because I always blame myself for things that happen, but in reality, it wasn't even my fault and it makes me feel bad. But I keep blaming myself for it, regardless.
"Never forget who you are." This means that you should always remember your past and your ancestors. You should know your past and remember where you came from. You should always be thinking about how your ancestors would feel if you were doing the stuff you do and they were standing right in front of you.
In this part of the story, it's showing Simba stepping in his fathers' paw print. Simba is remembering who he is and who is father is. He should always remember where he came from. He came from a King.
I can relate to this implication because I remember how successful in life my family members were and that's how I want to live my life as I grow older.
"Hakuna Matata for the rest of your days." This quote means that you shouldn't have any worries in your life. You should take life as it comes and live your life as you want. You shouldn't worry about the little things that don't mean anything. You should enjoy your life, not be stressed about things that really don't matter.
In this part of the story, Simba, Timon, and Pumbaa are singing and being happy. This shows that they aren't worried about anything. They are just dealing with things as they come. They aren't stressing over anything.
This relates to me because I tend to stress over small things that really shouldn't stress me out. But I really should just take life as it comes and not worry about unimportant things as much.
Have you ever been so worried about something that you just needed to rest or get away from people to get some peace?
"Even those who are gone, are with us as we go on." I really love this quote! This quote means that even the people that are gone from your life should live on in your heart. The people that you love the most might past away, but you shouldn't let them out of your life forever. They are always in your heart. You can even talk to them sometimes or pray to them. You should never forget about the people you love the most.
In this part of the story, Simba is thinking about going back to his kingdom, but is nervous because he doesn't know if he can fulfill all the Kings' obligations. Then he starts remembering who his father is and what he did as King. Simba has his father in his heart and knows he can do all the things his father can.
I can relate to this implication because my grandmother passed away a little while ago and I think about her everyday and I pray to her and about her every night. I know she will always be with me.
